Those are some slick looking wheels you got there . Also, The Eagle F1 GS-D3's are very sticky street tires.

Thanks. I was gonna go PS2, but Im pretty sure I will burn through these in one season, so I didnt want to spend the $$$ on PS2s, and Glenspeed recommended these tires.
I have PS2s on my 19" BBS RS-GTs and they are very good tires.

Why didn't you just go non-staggered? Seems odd you didn't, 10mm of patch difference isn't worth sacrificing rotation to me.

265/35 might not fit. If i have enough clearance with these, then when I get the R compounds, then I will get 265/35 all around.

255/40 all around would have been my choice then.

In any case, you can just run them reverse-staggered. Trust me, it's fun!

To be honest with you, Im not worried about swapping them front to back, more worried about swapping left to right, as Shannonville is very had on your fronts, especially the driver's side.

Ain't that the truth..... i learned the hard way after the racing season my driver side was down to the wire in no time compared to the other tires. Took me a while to figure out why!

Shannonville is brutal on the driver front. You should have seen what my S03 looked like after a day doing the full track. So swapping left to right is a must if you visit that track often. Thats why I went with directional tires too.

Pej, with directional tires you can't rotate left-right.

yes you can. They only need to rotate the right way, does not make a diff what side they are on. Its assymetrcal that need to be on left or right. Am I wrong?

Sorry pej, other way arount, directional means it can it only rolls one direction, MEANING you have to pay attention when putting the tires on (made that mistake a few times when i was working at the shop, i ended up with 3 left tires, and one right tire!). Assymetricaly, means that the tread pattern is the same either way you look at it!


So direction can only be rotated front to back, where Symetrical ones can be rotated any way you wanna rotate them!

You can only "rotate" them by removing the tires from the wheels and swapping them. Think about it physically, removing a wheel from one side and mounting it on the other; the tire now faces backwards.

Thats what I meant. I meant flipping the tires on the wheels. At least that way you can even out the wear, especially from Shannonville.
